In­spec­tors praise Tar­bolton

Ayrshire Post - - Cumnock And Doon Valley -

A school’s “high qual­ity” per­for­mance has been praised by in­spec­tors, writes Stu­art Wil­son.

Tar­bolton Pri­mary, which has just cel­e­brated its first birth­day in a new cam­pus, re­ceived the glow­ing re­port this week.

Head teacher, Jackie Blair, was sin­gled out for her “lead­er­ship and clear di­rec­tion” of the re­vamped school and nurs­ery.

It fol­lows a two- day visit from Ed­u­ca­tion Scot­land in­spec­tors in Jan­uary, who also praised “happy, con­fi­dent chil­dren”.

A “nur­tur­ing and in­clu­sive ethos” was an­other of the strengths pin­pointed within both the school and nurs­ery.

South Ayr­shire’s schools spokesman, Coun­cil­lor William Grant, said about the re­port: “The new Tar­bolton Com­mu­nity Cam­pus has just cel­e­brated its first an­niver­sary and it’s great to see the new build­ing is help­ing to de­liver first- class ed­u­ca­tion to chil­dren at ev­ery level.

“As head teacher, par­tic­u­lar praise was given for Jackie Blair’s lead­er­ship, some­thing which has helped to create an in­clu­sive cul­ture where teach­ers are con­fi­dent to work and chil­dren en­joy learn­ing.

“Par­ents and car­ers will take great com­fort from this pos­i­tive re­port and I’d like to thank every­one for their hard work in mak­ing the new cam­pus such a suc­cess.”
